of the year. 2012 is an important year for north korea. they want to commemorate the birth of kim jong-un and the death of kim jong-il. as far as they are concerned they say it was a success but we have to wait for confirmation. >> we had less than success for them in april when their similar launch actually broke apart. many said that was rather embarrassing for the administration in north korea. but this is pretty soon after that to have a successful launch. is there some concern there is another country out there helping north korea to get this technology to work? >> certainly there is that concern and there have been many reports and plenty of speculation about who might be helping north cia korea in their technology. of course it is almost impossible to get information out of north korea. it is an incredibly isolated, closed regime. the information officially we get from that country is through its state-run media. so nothing gets out of north korea unless it is choreographed through k cna, the state-run news agency and the state-run television and it is highly choreographed and m
may also be domestic instability. the source says that kim jong-un's rule may not be as secure as previously thought. and this kind of rocket launch could deflect any attention from that. tom? >> as you may recall, the last launch there did not go very well at all. >>> next to gaza city, where after 45 years in exile, one of the founders of hamas, khalid meshaal, made a historic return today. the pomp and circumstance surrounding his visit underscored the organization's powerful influence among palestinians. cnn's fred pleitgen was there. >> reporter: he received a triumphal welcome when he entered gaza. tens of thousands of hamas fighters lined the street wearing ski masks and combat fatigues and flashing their weapons, including ak-47s and rocket-propelled grenades. the official reason why meshaal is here after never having been in gaza before is the 25th anniversary of the founding of hamas which the united states considers to be a terrorist organization. one thing you hear on every street corner is hamas is saying they are declaring victory against israel after the armed co
while now since kim jong-un has taken over. i just want to ask him has been any sign that north korea's military and security policy strategy hasn't changed since he is come on board, or reduce it as a continuation of how they act in their approaches under his predecessors? >> well, i think we're still in the wait-and-see stages. there had been, i believe you can take a look at the last number of months. there have been i think a number of signs that might lead you to believe that the new regime leadership is going to take a more, i would say rational approach to how to deal with their own economy and how they deal with their own people, and how they deal internationally. and so i think generally there's been a feeling that there might be some hope there. however, now we are approaching, once again, a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution, and we encourage the leadership in north korea to consider what they are doing here and implications in the overall security environment on the korean peninsula, as well as destination. >> anything new? we been hearing some rumbl
this is the first anniversary of kim jong-un's rule because his dad died in the middle of december. i think it is because iran. iranians want a long-range missile. the north koreans have to test it to know it works and north koreans need the cash and iranians will not buy something that fails. jenna: that is interesting. since that time, iran says we're not in any sort of business with north korea. that's what they say. >> right. jenna: it is up to us to be skeptical to look into this. what makes you really believe the connection is being made? >> we know who is in another cree for iran. it is rep sentsd -- representatives of the industrial group. they are the people who at the end of last decade, two decades ago bought north korea's nadong missile and repainted with iranian colors and gave it to the armed forces and unveiled as the shahab-3. this connection goes back 15, 20 years. jenna: you say iranian officials are on the ground in north korea. >> right. jenna: has nothing to do with tourism. it has to do with business? >> it has nothing to do with sking. >> north korea needs money. iran
